Call for Papers
The 8th conference on Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language (AINL 2019) invites everyone interested in intellectual technologies, both from academic institutes and innovative companies. The conference aimed to bring together experts in the areas of text mining, speech technologies, dialogue systems, information retrieval, machine learning, artificial intelligence and robotics; to create a platform for sharing experience, extending contacts and searching for possible collaboration.


We invite the submission of papers that present original previously unpublished research. We accept full papers (12+ pages) and short papers (6–8 pages) formatted accordingly to the Springer LNCS style. Although Springer offers both LaTeX style files and Word templates, we highly encourage the authors to use LaTeX, especially for texts containing several formulae. The papers must be written in English.

All submitted papers will be peer reviewed. All papers will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the program committee. This year we will use a double-blind review scheme. Please anonymize your papers when submitting for initial review.

At least one author of accepted long and short papers must register for the conference and present the paper.

The authors should use the EasyChair system to submit their papers:

The conference proceedings will be published in the Springer CCIS series indexed by Scopus and Web of Science.


We invite demo and posters without publication. In this section it is possible to present previously published work or work in progress. Demo and posters will be reviewed by organizing committee. To participate, fill in a form provided under the link below.

Note, that if you need visa to come to Estonia you must contact us much earlier than the poster submission deadline.


We organize a number of industrial talks and interactive demonstration. To participate, fill in a form provided under the link below. The submissions will be evaluated by organizing committee.

Application form is under construction. Please return in a week or two.
